Text über den Künstler - English

Sculpture, video, photography, sound and light, performance, installation, stage design, music and dance productions - the artistic forms of expression of Alona Rodeh (b. 1979 in Israel, lives and works in Tel Aviv and Berlin) reflect the current, open field of discourse in the fine arts, which is not limited to any single medium or concept. The vocabulary of the 20th and early 21st century appears to be superseded, the broad categorisation as fine arts almost arrogant.

Sound and light are essential elements in the constant material and conceptual development of her work. Alona Rodeh often supports her sculptures by means of neon light boxes: they are at once material, theme and dramatic props. It is hypnotic and strident and comes out of the wall rhythmically, in discharged shocks. Run (from), dance, perform: the formally geometric abstraction of the installation develops into a theatrical experience.

Off-the-shelf technology plays an important part in Alona Rodeh’s exploration of the material and visual culture of safety, a culture which has surprising but strong affiliations with clubbing, fashion, theatre and architecture. Not just through fear politics and rhetorics, but through the objects and environments, the images and sounds shaping our lives in cities today.
